LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) – You can certainly get away from it all in a rustic cabin located between Crawford and Chadron which offers modern amenities and spectacular views.
We recently met owner Marisa Betson at the chalet. “We are about seven miles south of Whitney, Nebraska,” Betson said. “30 miles west of Chadron and east of Crawford. We are along the Pine Ridge Buttes.
People seem to come to Aunt Myrna’s cabin to enjoy the peaceful serenity. “When we read our guestbook that’s what we get, it’s peaceful, calm, off the beaten track. Visitors can just relax, watch nature. We have turkeys passing by, as well as deer and antelopes. We are open all year round. “
Aunt Myrna is Betson’s stepmother. “They live on the road 3 or 4 miles along the buttes,” Betson said. In 2001, they exchanged land in the mounds for land here that was more agriculturally productive. This house was here. She put a lot of work into it and turned it into a cabin. She opened it in 2004. We now rent it and operate it.
There are a number of excellent cabin amenities. “We provide all linens and towels,” Betson said. “There is a full kitchen, so there is a stove and an oven. It also has a microwave and refrigerator. There is a fireplace and a nice sitting area in the living room. There is a back patio and a front patio. The back patio is next to East Ash Creek and you have the view of the mounds from the front patio. We like to say that the cabin can accommodate up to at least 10 people.
The cabin happens to be located in an area where there is an incredible amount of things to see and do. “The possibilities are actually endless,” Betson said. “Fort Robinson is a big draw, and Toadstool Geological Park is also a great place to visit. People love to go to Agate Fossil Beds. But there’s also the Fur Trade Museum in Chadron, and there’s the Chadron State College campus where you can see the Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Center. Plus, you’re a day away from the Black Hills of South Dakota or the Scotts Bluff National Monument. ”
